Abstract : The Memorandum is an extension of certain analytic results obtained in AD-646 366, A Comparison of Average Likelihood and Maximum Likelihood Ratio Tests for Detecting Radar Targets of Unknown Doppler Frequency, L. E. Brennan, I. S. Reed, and W. Sollfrey, December 1966. It is shown that some asymptotic results derived in AD-646 366 are valid over a much broader range than originally indicated, providing a useful analytic tool for investigating more complicated radar detection problems involving signals of unknown frequency.
